Members Merit Awards Exhibition 2013

This exhibition runs from Tuesday 26 November 2013 - Sunday 15 December 2013 at the Lake House Arts Centre in Takapuna. The photo used on the advertising poster (shown left) has my 'Spring Trio' in the foreground, which won the Peoples Choice Award last year. This year I have entered two pieces: my 'Golden Wave' sculpture and the Mosaic Strip Mirror, which attracted a lot of comment at the Dunkleys Craft Show.
I attended the opening and prize-giving this evening and was disappointed that there was no award this year for sculptural work. All the awards were for various painting and pastel work (2D); whether this was because of the companies sponsoring the event I do not know but it was a shame that the whole area of 3D work was not judged.

A mention in the North Shore Times

It was quite a surprise to me, when reading the North Shore Times, to come across my own name in print! I received a mention as one of the artists/tutors taking part in the Christmas shopping evening that is taking place on Thursday 5 December at the Lake House Arts Centre.
